MOTIVO is a boutique Australian textile wholesaler to the trade. It evolved from 18 years combined experience in the design industry, from their own business to working with some of Australia’s most renowned interior designers, architects, and importers.
Their designers are diverse and print, paint or hand dye each of their designs. Motivo strongly supports their craft as many of these specialties are being lost by mass production.
One of their designers, Nicola, from Madder Cutch & Co started out as chemistry teacher with la lifelong love of textiles so she left the classroom to follow a childhood dream of going to art college.
Her inspiration comes from her surroundings and a love to draw, so Nicola turned her sketches into flowing repeats and screen-prints them by hand in her garden studio.
The delicate flowers of Achillea Millefolium that grow in the garden every summer have led to her first collection.
